Shun Classic Steak Knife Set of 4 These beautiful knives will draw nearly as much attention as a good steak. The DMS400 Classic 4-Knife Set from Shun Cutlery brings the fine Damascus-like steel and ebony-black pakkawood of Shun kitchen knives to the dinner table.

Shun doesn't need to dress up knives for public use, since their ordinary product line looks like art anyway. Nothing's lost in this set of four steak knives in the Shun Classic pattern. Some companies strip down the construction for steak knives, but these knives show all the quality and strength of the Shun Classic knives you'd use in the kitchen.

Four-and-3/4-inch-long blades of high carbon Damascus stainless steel provide flexibility plus the razor-sharp hard edge of Shun's VG-10, the core layer of the blade. Sixteen supporting layers of SUS410/SUS431 stainless steel form each side of the blade, protecting the harder VG-10 from damage. You'll only need a light touch to cut even the toughest meat, and actually shouldn't grind these hard edges into the plate. Diners accustomed to saw-like knives will be pleasantly surprised by the way these knives cut.

The Damascus steel blades show a rippled pattern like the grain of hardwood, and the slight hollows along the grain reduce contact with the food, making cuts even easier. The knife glides through instead of wedging a cut apart. Shun's knives are ground at 16 degrees and require a special sharpener, but if used properly, the edges require very little maintenance.

See the Mundial Olivier Steak Knife Set for an entirely different style of elegant steak knives.
